Google Fiber offers free internet to low-income housing

Google Fiber might be the most affordable gigabit-lever internet service and now you can even get it for free. The company has announced its plan on Wednesday and is now offering free Internet for public and affordable housing. Google is offering free internet to communities in Atlanta, Durham, Nashville and Kansas City.

The company stated that among households earning under $30,000 per year, roughly 26 percent don’t have any Internet access at all.  The company has started with a trial program that actually drove more than 90 percent of the residents in one public housing property sign up for the service.

This is a huge opportunity for people who do not access or cannot afford to pay for internet services. Let’s hope the service will be available in more cities in the near future.
